What is a wrinkle?
With time, exposure to the sun and other elements, skin components break down. The skin loses structure and volume. Unwelcome lines and wrinkles appear. Now we can correct wrinkles and facial folds, reversing the signs of aging without surgery.
How are wrinkles corrected?
The appearance of wrinkles and facial folds can be smoothed by adding structure and volume underneath, bringing sunken skin back to the surface. Generally, this is done by injecting materials into the skin, to achieve a temporary effect. One example is hyaluronic acid.
What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural complex sugar found in all living cells, and one of the major components of the dermis connective tissue matrix, along with collagen and elastin. HA retains water like a sponge, absorbing more than 1000 times its weight. This helps to attract and maintain water, hydrating your skin and increasing its volume and density.
